FBI looking into biker gang with ties to Alabama

Posted: Updated:

The Outlaw Motorcycle Club has chapters nationwide, according to court records, and its "Silver Region" encompasses clubs in Alabama and Georgia.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that nearly two dozen defendants with ties to the Outlaws and its affiliated clubs - the Black Pistons, Hoodlums and Southern Knights - were charged with federal drug and weapons offenses after the undercover operation was shut down.

An FBI agent says the agency is investigating a leak that compromised an undercover investigation into the Outlaw Motorcycle Club. Court documents show that federal authorities suspect a law enforcement official leaked the name of a government informant, a development that halted the investigation this summer.
